The fonds mainly provides information on Sister Prudence Allen’s research, teaching activities, and her religious life. Some materials are related, among others, to religious figures such as Hildergard of Bingen and Edith Stein, as well as philosophical perspectives on woman. The fonds also gives genealogical information on the Allen family and the Oneida Community

The fonds includes lectures, speeches, and articles; correspondence, daily journals, and photographs. The fonds also includes three dolls made by Sr. Prudence Allen’s grandmother, Christine Hamilton Allen (1875-1952), a social worker who worked closely with Eleonar Roosevelt during the Suffrage Movement. There are other artifacts such as a Tree of Life embroidered for Sr. Prudence Allen by Gretta Nemiroff.
